Re: Seems like its always something

No it is the 750cfm that I had bought for the first motor but I couldn't get it to do right on it so I bought a 650. I also thought it might be the valve but I checked it with a vacuum gauge and all is good. I have finally gotten a little color on the plugs but I'm down to a 65 on the front jets and...

Seems like its always something

Tom loaned me his O2 meter and I have spent the week working with my carburetor, I won't say I'm working on it do the fact that I am not quite making the progress I would like. The car does really run good. I just cant seem to get it leaned up the way I like it. The jets keep getting smaller but the...

Re: Motor Parts

A follow up on my alternator adjustments. Lowes did not have any wide 1/4" aluminum plate so I had to go with a 1" piece. This added an additional challenge. So I used some of my years of watching "The Woodwright Shop" on PBS. The shows on forging in the blacksmith shop paid off. All is well now and...

Re: Motor Parts

Here's another long winded follow up on the mounting holes. The drilling went well (didn't strike water or break off a tap). The mounting bkt needed a little filing to get the holes lined up but that went well also. However as one thing changes so does another. The boss for the holes is a large area...

Re: Motor Parts

Here it the solution that I came up with for my drilling jig.

That's a level tapped to the handle. And a 90 deg magnet for the side to side.

Re: Motor Parts

Thanks for the "support" I think. Yes it is all part of it. This block was given to me already prepped so I was a little disconnected (at least that is the story I'm sticking to). I have to assume it is an early 400 block as the starter didn't have 2 mounting sets and now the lower holes. But it is ...

Re: Motor Parts

As the old saying goes. "What is wrong with these pictures"? The alternator was the last part left to bolt on however as the pictures show no holes. Sure wish I had seen the holes missing while the motor was out of the car. Had to pull the electric steering back out but I can get to the bosses. So i...

Re: Motor Parts

Starts when warm ok. I don't think no fuel was the problem. The Holley double pumper dumps lots of fuel when you move the throttle. for a while I thought I had flooded it. I have to pull the distributor to get the motor back in (its in the wrong place you know..lol) that is why I had to redo the tim...
